Teenager Drowns at Rockaway Beach in Queens

Posted by Anup Baral May 27th, 2016 :
A teenager died on Wednesday while swimming at Rockaway Beach in Queens in what officials said was the first drowning of the year at a public city beach, just days before lifeguards would take their posts for the summer season. The authorities were called shortly after 2:30 p.m. to the boardwalk near 67th Street, where, the police said, a 19-year-old man was struggling in the water. Teams of divers and boats were sent to look for him. Divers from the New York Fire Department found him unconscious and unresponsive after he had been in the water for nearly an hour, the authorities said. The man was taken to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway, where he was pronounced dead, the authorities said. His name has not been released.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
